Today in January’s crime fiction section, contributing editor David Thayer reviews Steve Hockensmith’s follow-up novel to 2006’s very successful Holmes on the Range. As much as Thayer liked that book, he likes this one better, enjoying the history as much as the mystery.

The full review is here.

  1. Wow, that’s quite a stew! If Hockensmith managed to combine all those elements and have it come out as tasty as you describe, my Stetson is off to him.

    I guess I’ll have to go buy it. Sigh. So many books to read. (Though I suppose that’s better than too few.)
